i loved dota, but i can't keep up anymore and just play rimworld now for my fill of violence and farming

same but once my irl friends and i stopped playing it, it wasnt fun anymore. i never liked playing entirely with strangers

that was like 8 years ago so i wouldnt even understand what im seeing on screen if i went back now

i also enjoyed dota but the friend group i played with had a falling out and i got sick of being berated by lovely people in the game. would unironically love a single player dota rpg where i got to play as nature's prophet, though

Counter strike surf maps were a lot of fun did anyone here play on party princess palace?

i've told this story multiple times now but when my friend was applying for jobs out of college he put down a bunch of things he did in dota 2 on his resume but worded them more professional e.g. lead team of 5 to success on project, tapered expectations, etc.

in high school there was this css server we used to play on all the time

it was cs_office 24/7, hosted by some dude at georgia tech, and had all custom sound effects. i knew most of the people on it, and it rocked

100% of my experience with dotas is being yelled at for playing wrong the first time i played one, so i never bothered

tribes 2 was one of the best multiplayer games i've ever played. in fact i'm going to install it and see if it still runs on modern poo poo.

i went poking and i am so happy to find people still running servers and easy installs! i even got it running on my lightweight linux desktop for kicks, then had to tweak settings to get decent performance like i was back using my voodoo card again

i forgot all my voice command stacking, but being able to clip taunts onto other sentences was so fun

i loved tribes 2 more than any other shooting game.

i still remember connecting with a flag runner in midair with the mortar cannon or whatever it was called. the guy was so far away from me i couldnít even see him through the fog but that shot was true

those blind guestimate shots were so satisfying. getting a good mental model of mortar arcs was such a rewarding skill

I was never much of a FPS deathmatch player, but I did discover I had a knack for finessing the alt-fire of the UT flak cannon all the way across an open map with a high lob while moving and nailing another player heading in the opposite direction.

i always felt that moba matches were waaaay too long, i couldn't dedicate myself to 45 minute matches, i got way bored by the end

c system shock s: the visual design of these puzzles is so confusing, i didn't realise that some plugs on the power puzzles are worth 2 and others 1 and on the pipe dream puzzle i spent ages trying to solve one only to realise that you could route through the little turny dials sometimes

heck yeah. I tried to dockerize a 1.6 server and log it with surf / fun maps during the pandemic. found two other examples on the net but couldnít get them working.

Iíd be down to host/organize this

cue Iíll make the wiki jokes


e: never ran/admined a UT server is there a similar dockerized setup and contains the equivalent of AMX mod X for that?

no idea, i've only hosted stuff through the client before. anyone got any experience with a dedicated server?

global matchmaking mmr servers with randos bores me these days. bring back a weirdo modded private server run by salvatore from new york city that has the same 35 players logging in every day

man ainít this the truth. i put so much time into q2 and q3 and being able to play on the same servers with the same people and get to know them was really fun.

the only game that scratches my multiplayer itch these days is overwatch, but it feels like such a lonely experience only playing with randos. (and it doesnít help that blizzard is a trashfire company)

it was really good. In tribes1, all the maps were broken when people discovered skiing, but t2 fixed a bunch of problems.

i loved tribes 1 and was so pumped for tribes 2, but when it came out there were game breaking bugs like my mouse 2 getting ďstuckĒ so i kinda bailed on it. i guess i missed out

iíll forever treasure my memories of packing my isp tech support coworkers into a transport and taxiing them around to rain mortar hellfire on the enemy base, bodies just flying out the door as they tried to escape
